Hi. Most likely your carb or your engine is gunked up a bit. Get a bottle of a fuel additive called seafoam, from most any auto parts store. Follow the directions on the bottle and add it to your fuel and then run it. Within a couple of minutes your problem should be solved. If it is not, the next step is to have the carburator rebuilt.

Will not start it ran and juat stopped I can put gas in the choke and plug it will run for a few seconds and stop


Ethanol gas wrecks Carburetors and Gas lines. Just for giggles see if the Stone filter in the gas tank broke off the dried out gas line.

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.
